My D200 and my D300 came with very effective LCD screen protectors. They are hard plastic which are attached mechanically by snapping into mounting notches. They are easy to remove. I assumed that my D4 would come with one too. Surprise, surprise, I unboxed it today, planning to use it a good deal at a Renaissance Festival this weekend, and found that Nikon no longer supplies such protectors. I'm disappointed that the dealer from whom I bought the camera on Tuesday didn't alert me to that deficiency. I called today and learned that the dealer does not have any protector for it in stock. It will order a Hoodman protector. I hate to risk two days of heavy use without such protection.

The D4 has a 3.2" (8 cm) TFT LCD Monitor. Does it need protection?

If protection is needed, what protector is best? I see:
* HOODMAN SUPER HOODSKINS 3.0
-- Too Small
* HOODMAN SUPER HOODSKINS XL
-- http://www.hoodmanusa.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SHSK+XL
-- Fits 3.5 inch or less LCD screens (Too Big so Trim to fit?)
-- Positive ion mounting (no adhesive)
-- Advertised for all Point & Shoot Cameras
-- $12.99
* ZAGG Nikon D4 Screen Protector
-- http://www.zagg.com/invisibleshield/nikon-d4-cases-screen-protectors-covers-skins-shields.php
-- For LCD Screen Only
-- I like the ZAGG HD protector I use on my iPad3
-- Must apply a special liquid to the screen and to the protector and then squeegee the sheet to the screen, then let cure for 24 hours with the device turned off
